Systrends Receives SSAE 16 Type 2 Certification for Operations Center

Systrends, a leading provider of web-based software for the energy and utility markets, announced today the company has completed an SSAE 16 Type 2 audit covering their headquarters location in Tempe, Arizona.
Certification of this Systrends facility further validates the resiliency and operational excellence of its security standards and further proves Systrends dedication to the information security of its customers. This independent evaluation demonstrates the effectiveness of its control policies and procedures. Systrends customers can feel confident that suitably designed controls are in operation, and operating effectively.
“Systrends previously co-located our production servers and business recovery servers in two sites which were already SSAE 16 compliant. With the accomplishment of this audit, all sites where we have any equipment are now certified. This SSAE 16 accreditation will only further increase customer adoption of our secure billing and CIS, transaction transport, transformation, and data management solutions,” said David Darnell, Chief Executive Officer of Systrends.
SSAE 16 is designed to provide Systrends customers with a level of assurance of corporate systems and controls. The Moore Group, CPA, a leader in providing SSAE 16 (SOC 1) and (SOC 2) and SAS 70 audits to small businesses throughout the United States, conducted the SSAE 16 (SOC 2) audit.
The report, produced after a thorough independent examination of Systrends internal controls and processes, demonstrates the reliability and security of its operations center. This SSAE 16 report scope focuses on procedures which are likely to be relevant to Systrends customers’ requirements for data security and control.
